Donny van de Beek out with groin injury!
The 24-year-old midfielder, playing for Manchester United, had to withdraw from the “Oranje” squad for the EURO2020. KNVB (Dutch national football association) did not state what type of injury he suffered from but sources are saying it is a strain in the groin. Sources are also saying Van de Beek have been playing on painkillers for several weeks but in the end decided based on recommendations from the KNVB doctor to withdraw from the squad.
Van de Beek was one of the young star players from AJAX that reached the semi-finals of Champions league two years ago and joined Manchester United last summer for €35 million.
Coach Frank de Boer will not call up a replacement so close to the start of the tournament leaving him with 25 players in the squad.
